The following are listed by Australia's National Film and Sound Archive as being "telemovie":
Scrooge (25 December 1957) (broadcaster not named)

Dinner with the Family (1958) (produced by ABC)

The Caine Mutiny Court Martial (1959) (website gives this description: "A fictional account of a mutiny on the USS 'Caine' set in 1945, presented for television by The Melbourne Little Theatre for HSV 7 Melbourne in January 1959")

The Grey Nurse Said Nothing (c. 1959) (produced by ATN 7 Sydney)

Hamlet (1959) (broadcaster not named, but I presume it was ABC)

Hedda Gabler (1959) (broadcaster not named)

Pardon Miss Westcott (1959) (produced by ATN 7 Sydney) (described as "A TV special from 1959 telling a story about early colonial Australia")

Note: ABC means Australian Broadcasting Corporation. Sorta like a cross between the British BBC and the American PBS.
